Featuring: Tulsa Youth Symphony

This concert features an adaptation of Georges Bizet’s fiery and controversial Carmen by Rodion Shchedrin, where the opera is now transformed into ballet and features strings and percussion. The Tulsa Youth Symphony joins the Signature Symphony on the first part of the program featuring Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis, a work utilizing two string orchestras and a solo quartet to pay a mesmerizingly beautiful homage to English composer Thomas Tallis. The King of Tango, Astor Piazzolla, is also featured with Artistic Director Scott Seaton playing and conducting one of the Tango Etudes.
